Dalen is a young multi-talented entrepreneur on the move: He is the Co-Founder /Co-Owner of Loren Spratt, a company that specializes in both fashion and film Dalen's first television show, a comedic paranormal investigative series, called GhostBrothers debuted on Destination America on April 15th and airs on Fridays at 10pm and became the #1 Premier of all time for the network. Loren Spratt has been featured on or in Essence.com, VH1, BET, Starz, the NAACP awards, The Grammys, Spike TV and much more I am delighted to have him on the show to share his wisdom as a young MBA, with a modern digital footprint.  His journey is quite remarkable, as this Clark Atlanta University graduate, has developed a men's fashion line, that offers a very concierge like experience to men seeking a tailored suit and a very personal experience in the process. You'll certainly be inspired by his focus, mindset and transparency.  Though this young 20-something still has a great deal of years + opportunity ahead of him, you can hear the experience and knowledge he's gained so far as an entrepreneur in this interview.  I value Dalen's real life stories, his honesty and acceptance to be vulnerable about his fears, failures and challenges on his journey. From the beginning of this call, before I hit the record button, he was just so excited for me to ask anything and help give his all to this interview and for that I'm eternally grateful.
